How to get rid of birds in the attic
If you have birds that have gotten into your attic then you know this can be very difficult to get rid of them. Because of their ability to fly, it can be very hard to trap them so that you can get rid of them from your home. This means that you need to find some other methods to get them out.
You could turn to some kind of poison to kill them off. This is a quick solution, but it requires that you will have a lot of cleanup to do afterwards. Now you may not be bothered by that idea, because you are already going to have to do a lot of cleanup. Birds hang from the rafters or perch themselves on items you may have in your attic and leave their waste below them. You may already have a lot of work to do to clean up their messes, and so picking up some dead birds may not seem like too much additional work. The truth is this option will work.
If you want something more humane then you need to look at some option where you can scare them out. Once they are out you will have to seal the area where they are getting in so they cannot get back into your home.
For many animals the use of a one-way funnel is the solution. However, this does not work very well for birds, primarily because they cannot flap their wings while getting through the funnel. Thus they will avoid going through this entryway where they cannot get back in.
Your option then is to get them go to go through the way that they have entered your home but to try to get them to do it in one massive shot. The thing to consider is that if they are startled enough they will not turn around to try to get right back in. They will all fly away and looked to return at a later point. You will have just fixed that by that time so that they cannot get back in.
The way to do this is to put some loudspeakers and lights inside the attic very quietly. Once it starts to hit daylight turn on the speakers very loudly and the lights very brightly. This will startle the birds and they will try to escape toward their entryway. If you have a dog, it is also a good idea to have that animal chased the birds around. This will really get them to go away.
Once outside, now you just go and seal up the entryway so that they cannot regain access. This will resolve your problem and now there’s just the cleanup left to do.
